Material related to MARS
(Please post here anything that will be useful if someone decides to create a MARS grf)

Great idea Mr. NASA!!! Let's contaminate Mars too. :twisted:

Didn't George do a Mars conversion for TTDP? 8-)

He did (I wish he would revisit it and enhance it-George are you reading this? ;) ) and there exists another Martian grf. Still something more 'realistic' (and quality artwork)-not toy-fiction-doesn't exist.

Not much graphics but interesting reading here:

Quote:
As a resource, regolith shows promise for construction partly due to the extensive presence of volcanic basalt in the surface soil.

"Construction materials containing basalt and a bonding agent would be two to three times stronger in compression than normal cement concrete typically used here on Earth," Fox said. "It would be an excellent raw material for construction on the moon or Mars."

Fox noted that the strength of basalt in construction is demonstrated in second-century Roman architecture which has withstood the elements for centuries.

A new grf wouldn't lack variety. See here the 30 finalists for the NASA 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge:
